Psyonix's hit soccer-with-cars game Rocket League, which was originally released in 2015, came out on top for PlayStation 4 in North America, outperforming 2016 blockbusters like Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Unlike those games, Rocket League is a $20 game that was discounted a number of times during the year.

Rounding out the top five best-sellers on PS4 were Battlefield 1, Minecraft, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and The Division.

On PS3, the top five best-selling games, in order, were Minecraft, The Last of Us, Grand Theft Auto V, LittleBigPlanet 3, and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. Job Simulator was the most-downloaded PlayStation VR game, while Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth came out on top for PlayStation Vita.

Sony also today announced the top-performers for December, with Ark: Survival Evolved landing in the No. 1 position on PS4. Go to the PlayStation Blog to see a full rundown of December's most-download PlayStation Store games.
